The hip-hop mogul is shutting down discussions of the former group's return.
Are G-Unit fans ready for a reunion? An online petition says yes -- but one member of the hip-hop group is shutting down the possibility.
G-Unit consisted of 50 Cent , Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, The Game and Young Buck. At one point in time, the group was the face of hip-hop, but that all came tumbling down after the 2008 release of sophomore album "T.O.S.: Terminate On Sight."
The reunion discussion started with The Game, who created a petition on his Facebook page for fans to vote for a G-Unit reunion via gunitreunion.com . As of February 1, the petition has over 11,000 signatures.
In a recent interview with MTV, Tony Yayo said he would love to see a reunion, but without Game and Young Buck. He also stated that there were issues with the latter rappers that revolved around money.
"When everybody got money, it's like things just went downhill, so it's like, I dunno, egos,” he said.
Young Buck and Lloyd Banks have not weighed in on whether they would want a reunion or not.
However, 50 Cent has made his feelings on the matter clear.
“You're not gonna get nothing back together. I decide that. I do what I want to do. I don't give a fuck what they talking about on a blog post," he told AOL’s The Boombox , addressing the disrespect within the group. “What would you say if I actually did put it together and then it fell apart right in front of you? Or if I bring them around each other and their feelings from a long time — the disrespect and the talking — bleed over into the people that are just around them and then one of them gets shot and killed, or one of them gets stabbed and hurt bad. Then what?"
